Herfa Thompson presents Synapses Under A Vast Sky, a mural that meanders through the Bar & Kitchen spaces at The Tetley.

This new work, commissioned especially for these spaces, celebrates the intimacy of sharing food and spending time together, simple pleasures that have been impossible in recent times.

The mural is inspired by local fruit and vegetables, such as rhubarb, the local brewing culture in South Leeds, and specific varieties of Yorkshire apples such as the Ribston Pippin which dates back to 1707.
